Yes. If you are busy you may not notice them. They don't hurt and are not very co-ordinated so you may not notice. Also if you have a very active baby you may mistake them for movements. You may begin to notice them more in the next 2 or 3 weeks as your uterus prepares for labor.

How many braxton hicks can you have in a hour?

Braxton Hicks can be quite regular and can come 5 or 10 minutes apart but they are not making changes in the cervix. The easiest way to tell Braxton Hicks from true labor is to drink a glass of water or juice, and change your activity. If walking, lie down - if lying down, take a walk. Labor will not stop when you move around or stop what you are doing, Braxton Hicks generally will. If you are having regular contractions it is best to call your doctor or hospital for an evaluation - many women have quite painful Braxton Hick's and many women have very little pain from early contractions that could signal early labor.
